, by the way. >> yes. >> it deserves the applause. >> and it was -- i was looking a lot at the history of cbs and nbc, the big two, but abc has started coming on strong and it became the third of the big three. how did abc news did on parity with nbc and cbs? what is the timeframe that that happened? >> abc news to everyone always says it was the fourth that of three. [laughter] for the 60's and 70's. it was a very weak news organization by all accounts. let's be clear. abc does the weakest of the networks as well. if you recall, there were to nbc network and nbc had a spinoff because they had trust concerns. so letter golden sun started building up the entertainment part of abc and to some degree successfully in the 60's and 70's. he concluded the only way to really get to parity with cbs and nbc was to build a great news organization, not so much because he loved news, but because the local stations made most of their money, as they do today, off of their newscast. he needed to improve. so he turned to abc sports, monday night football, while the world's ports and it said, you go over to ne

[ male announcer ] yes, it is, business pro. yes, it is. go national. go like a pro. >>> i will come on "morning joe" and i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was david axelrod, famous for his mustache. he's with the obama campaign, sounding very bullish on their chances, obama's chance of carrying michigan, minnesota, and of course, pennsylvania. these three states haven't been given much time or attention by the media or the money spenders until lately. that's because the romney camp and their cohorts in
times"/cbs poll has the president up one, 48-47. and a new npr poll has romney up one, 48/47 but the npr poll also finds that president obama has a four-point lead in the battleground states, 50-46. we'll be right back. this is hayden. he's five years old. that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of cuts to their schools. prop thirty-eight. thirty-eight raises billions in new revenue - bypasses sacramento and sends every k through 12 dollar straight to our local schools... every school. for them. for all of us. vote yes on thirty-eight. joe," and i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was, of course, david axelrod, famous for his mustache. he's with the obama campaign, sounding very bullish i should say on their chances, obama's chance of carrying michigan, minnesota, and of course, pennsylvania. these three states haven't been given much time or attention by the media or
in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin. 51-43. a new quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs news swing state poll shows president obama leading in ohio with likely voters 50 to 45. a tighter race in virginia. president obama at 49, mitt romney at 47, which is a statistical tie within the poll's 3% margin of error. and in florida that poll has president obama at 48 and mitt romney at 47. another statistical tie. tonight nate silver of the "new york times'" 538 blog forecasts that on november 6th president obama will win 300 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 238 and president obama's chance of re-election ticked up tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common gro
viewers understand, you and steve croft of cbs, you were the only two of all the journalists globally who asked for this kind of access to the president, you got it. >> yeah. >> given this access, when you spoke with president obama, what was the one thing he told you about this raid that most surprised you? >> well, really i think it was that when admiral mcraven first outlined the mission, what it would take to send the squadron of s.e.a.l.s. into abbottabad, the admiral recommended if they woke pennsylvania's military and were confronted -- woke up pennsylvan pakistan's military and were confronted -- they thought that admiral mcraven would have been more aggressive on this point, but president obama said, no, if you're going in, i want you to be prepared to fight your way out because we're not going to leave those men at the mercy of our negotiations with pakistan. >> and finish. and finish. >>> and i think it's interesting, the title of your book. it comes from an acronym for find, fix, finish. what does that mean, what does that mean in conjunction with this wade? >> right. well, th
these, cbs saying you got to concede, he said i don't think i lost. the polls are wrong again. when have the polls ever mistakenly said the republican has won? really! i am not worried about the exit polls. >> i thought you meant the ten point spread is in our state? >> i don't remember what you're talking about. [talking over each other] >> in light of yesterday's lorillard humans in the supreme court in university of texas, what do you think is the possibility and probability of ending affirmative-action? >> my law firm brought the case against university of michigan undergrad and law school, center for individual rights. we brought the original case ten years ago and won against the law school and undergrads because of sandra day o'connor who said we need 25 more years of affirmative action. now we have constitutional provisions with expiration dates. there is an interesting book avent tsurprise. liberals try to help how did they cover the failure of public school? affirmative-action. let's deal with the public schools and i suppose i should say, whether or not i always thought was a
election day. the focus is still on critical swing states. polling from cbs news, "the new york times" and quinnipiac shows the president up by five points in ohio. that is unchanged from two weeks ago. in florida, just a single point separates the two candidates. the president had a nine-point lead in september. it's a similar story in virginia where mitt romney has closed the president's lead to within two points. are you really going to slurp your coffee? yes, you are. okay. when it comes to -- >> brutal. >> john heilemann. >> he isn't slurping his coffee. >> i just wondered. you're like my dad. he does that. >> when it comes to early voting, the president's ahead in both ohio and virginia. i tell you what, the economic outlook's a big reason why barack obama's maintaining this five-point lead. look at the same quinnipiac poll, these internals are brutal for mitt romney. any way you slice it. unless you believe that quinnipiac, one of the most accurate polling that's out there is cooking the books. and if you do, change channels because you're listening to the wrong channel. >> yes
. is that the gasolineup will poll? the other -- gallup poll? the other is the abc, cbs poll excuse me. never in modern presidential history has any president, 50% or over lost the election. >> dana: but never has obama been at 50% up to now. >> bob: he was up a few weeks ago. >> kimberly: the last poll is within the margin of error. >> bob: you can pick it apart but more people think he is doing a good job than you. do >> dana: that's for sure. >> kimberly: talk about something serious. your vote and making it count. >> bob: that's serious. >> kimberly: what is important is your vote counts. it's our duty and responseability to report this. there has been problems with early voting in north carolina and ohio where people are going to cast their vote, they are selecting -- sorry to tell you, bob -- mitt romney and vote logs for president barack obama. they had to take the machine and re-calibrate it. problem happening. when you go to vote, make certain and check. imagine the people that went to vote there before they didn't catch it, you are in a rush and late for work. you leave thinking you voted for
. this is cbs news. calling the election and retracting to remind you what happened 12 years ago. [video clip] >> let's point out the television and radio networks using a pool of data exit poll information have made some mistakes over the night. it the big one being in florida, first calling it for al gore and then calling in for bush and then calling it back. the television and radio networks are not the only ones who had to take some calls back. >> i have one newspaper, this is "the new york post." they called it for george bush. just like the networks, they came out with a new edition, they called it "a nail biter." when it happened to us, it was based on technology. this is kind of scary what we are basing it all on tonight. >> they may yet be right. in the case of the chicago newspaper, there were wrong. it still could be right, but they pulled back. >> in fairness to al gore making his concession phone call, he was probably listening to us. >> no doubt about it. it is 260 al gore, with 270 needed to win. florida's electoral votes. the reason florida is in white is because if this stat
of people did not answer their phones when they know it is pulolling. the stations you mentioned -- cnn, cbs, fox -- all cleaned liberal except for fox. even the moderators were very liberal. they stepped in to help out the president. i cannot see how we can trust you because this does not make sense. response.s get a guest: let me answer the polling question about cell phones and peoples on willingness to answer. we do get a lot of people that refuse to talk with us or we never reach. if the phone rings and you see a caller identification and you figure it is a poll and do not answer. a lot of people do not answer their phone for a lot of reasons. people don't answer the phones for political reasons. our polling has been accurate in elections and it would not be if we were turned down more by republicans than bite democrats. we have done studies about household that we call and household that we do not reach an we do not see any differences politically between them. the people we cannot talk to have the same profile that we do call. we try not to be biased. if we were perceived as biased an
morning that minister farrakhan was on a cbs morning show, and i've warned him to some extent- i won't use that term, "warn"- it's the conversations we had, "be careful of some of these things," because that's a short segment, and when you're as controversial as minister farrakhan is, you're not going to have the chance to explore very much. and the media has this way of dealing with where they're coming from, the point that they want to make- they have to satisfy their advertisers- so they go at you in a particular way. and i was very much disturbed, because they take this phrase that they keep chasing minister farrakhan down on about hitler and the jews, and they took a phrase and says- made a quotation directly from this tape- where he says, "hitler was a great man," and cut it right there. but what he said after that made all the difference in the world! i mean ,the context out of which he was coming made all the difference in the world in terms of what he was trying to say! so why should they do that? i mean, why should they- whoever was involved in that- who know- the media knows how
and has the momentum. today new quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs polls has the president up five points in ohio and then they have florida and virginia in a dead heat with the president up by one point in florida and two points in virginia. then you look at the romney mini surge in the nonbattleground states, maybe romney does have some momentum. think minnesota, michigan and pennsylvania. but then you have to look at the campaign body language and it's hard not to con chewed that r romney's campaign is acting as if they believe they are behind at least when it comes to the state of ohio. for starters, the romney campaign likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign po
are not falling for it in the state of ohio. >> as we look at the latest polling from cbs, the new york times and quinnipiac, find the majority of people in ohio, over 50%, is saying that the economy is getting better. obviously the governor's message is one that relies on economic frustration and the president is holding a firewall in ohio currently. we've talked before and you said that ohio is going to be delivered for the president. do you still feel confident about that? >> i do, thomas. even though we're feeling some of the residual effects of sandy and my heart and soul and prayers go out to our brothers and sisters on the east coast, we are holding for the president. the latest polls show 50 to 45% for early voters, 60 to 34% and among women, thank god almighty 55 to 40% because women in ohio understand it and they don't want to elect leaders that will treat them like second-class citizens, leaders that have a campaign that would say that rape is a form of conception. it makes absolutely no sense. ohio understands who's been standing by their side for the last four years. and just as
leap. i want to run a number that jumped out at me from the cbs/"the new york times" poll. in this poll, they asked ohio, florida and virginia voters do you think things in your state, the economic conditions in your state are getting better, worse or staying the same? you look at florida, 37-25 better. virginia 39-19 better. ohio, you have the unemployment rate lower than the national average. 52% better, 17% worse. pretty big difference there. is this just a case where the economic conditions in a particular state are kind of overriding national factors? >> i think that's possible. certainly the case of the state economy stronger than elsewhere and the auto bailout is a tangible example to look at the president saying that's something that made the economic conditions where i live better and not true elsewhere in the country but i will note that broadly speaking romney's performing worse in states where the economy is doing well and like in iowa and the unemployment rate is lower than it is in ohio so i think it's not just as simple of whether the economy is doing well and other facto
" and cbs news shows president obama ahead 50-45 among likely voters in ohio, that is unchanged from last week. the race has gotten a lot closer in florida where support for governor romney is surging higher. the race there now a virtual tie, 48-47, five weeks ago the president was winning by nine. in virginia the president is leading by two points, 49-47. three weeks ago he was ahead by five. let's talk about these numbers with charlie hurt, a columnist for the washington times. so if you were one of these candidates, which would you rather be given the trend lines, charlie? >> i think that given the fact that all of these polls are closing which, by the way, is not very surprising the polls are closing at this point in the race, but they're all sort of closing in mitt romney's favor, i think i would rather be mitt romney at this exact moment. but, obviously, you know, when you look at polls such as ohio which is, you know, historically a must-win state for either candidate, you know, obama is still faring pretty well according to the polls. and i guess the big question is how much faith
local so we can make sure that jobs are here that should be here. host: 1 story from cbs news said this had hit romney on china. it is challenging him and accusing him of outsourcing jobs. it rebuts his claims that he would stand up to host: is a volatile spot on him? is he week are in china? guest: the president has been extremely weak on china and the past four years have proven it. as far as outsourcing jobs, the president ever stimulus bonds outsourced thousands of american jobs and money that was borrowed against the american taxpayer was also outsourced. looking at fisker automotive, those jobs went overseas. this president has been a failure when it comes to making sure jobs stay in the united states and protecting us against currency manipulation. host: from iowa, mason city, independent. good morning. caller: there was a caller a few minutes ago from louisiana with a different guest talking about the campaign. basically, he said that they were laundering money coming from foreign countries going to the democrats. how come nobody is talking about the fiscal cliff? there was
times, cbs news poll shows a president with a 5 point lead in ohio. karl rove questions the validity of that particular poll. he says, quote, that survey gives democrats a plus 8 advantage in turnout. the same advantage democrats had in 2008. that assumption, writes karl rove, is to put it gently, absurd. joining us from the weekly starred, kelly jane, is karl rove on to something, do you think? >> possibly. you know, i have to admit i have trouble understanding this obsession that pollsters and pundits have with the numbers and kind of reminds me when i was a kid and couldn't wait until december 25th to see what i got for christmas and wrapped a little of the gift. nobody wants to wait a week and everybody has to know what's going on now. stuart: if you look at things now. the romney camp have to admit the momentum they the got falling the debates has stalled and they're actually in a dead heat. my point is, the momentum has stalled and that has to worry them. >> you're right, it's a dead heat and nobody can deny at that despite the fact that people on both sides, obama campaign peo
to win the grand prize of two out -- $5,000. cb -- c-span's competition is open to students grades 6 through 12. find out more at studentca m.org. >> the u.s. house and senate and the federal government -- host: we are highlighting key battleground states of campaign 2012. today we put a spotlight on iowa. joining us from des moines is a senior political writer with the associated press, mike glover. what is the economy like in the iowa? guest: the economy is probably better than the rest of the country. it's not great, but we have not suffered the depths of the recession that some other parts of the country have. the economy is less of an issue than it is in many other places around. basically because the farm economy is pretty good this year. commodity prices are up as well as land prices. so there's not a lot of economic uncertainty. host: what are the top issues that iowa voters are thinking? guest: it depends on what group you are talking to. on the republican side, the topics they are talking about are the social issues. that's very important. it has driven republican politics
super pacs like abc, nbc, cbs, pbs, npr, cnn, the new york times? the million dollars from the new york times that they spend every year to produce this product and pay its employees is enough, don't you? host: are you calling the media outlets super pacs? caller: definitely, they are political lobbying groups. guest: the first amendment to the constitution as a provision that talks about the press. so there has always been in the rules about financing campaigns an exemption for news organizations. there are no restrictions on what people can write in newspapers or can express on television. they are very careful to separate their editorial opinions and the editorial pages and their own perspectives from the news. that is their profession. it encourages them to be as objective as they can. so everybody is free to judge those messages as they come from the media and there are lots of them in very different forms in this era than there have been in the past. but there's an exemption in the constitution that allows them to spend money that way without any restrictions. host: let's look at
at -- by the way rude, did you know i just saw this over the weekend. the cbs poll that showed romney winning by a wide margin in the first poll. did you know that obama in the same poll won the third poll by an even larger margin. but you make a good point. as to how it was covered. with obama, it was covered like a disaster of epic proportions never before seen in politics. and it was not. you know. yes, he was not on his game. anybody can say that. this is -- as you said, you're describing romney in the third debate. he either agreed completely or threw out a word or two that looked like he looked things up on his smart phone. romney's sole plan seems to be he'll be there and not obama. no doubt america will seem stronger with a man named willard in charge. somebody did the graphic but everything he said but i'm white. >> yeah. that's pretty much it. and you know, i just want to go up to people that are thinking of voting for romney and going what if obama said i have a plan to fix the economy but i'm not going to tell
as well as operating -- cbs "newshour" past -- [inaudible] >> "don't ask don't tell," the elimination of the "don't ask don't tell" we are a year into this so i don't want to abstain it but it could not have gone any better than it has gone. i think it has to do first with how we rolled it out, how we briefed it and frankly we underestimated our younger populations and their ability, their acceptability of this issue. in my mind, so far it really could not have gone any better. there are still some things we have to work through but it has gone very well. in terms of our recruiting, i always caveat this because it has a lot to do with our economic and unemployment that the last two years up in the highest quality of recruits the army has said that i can remember. in terms of educational levels and in terms of waivers we have granted him a party recruited 30,000 for next year. which is half of our requirement. it's already done. there are people -- when the economy changes could impact us? c.'s, but right now it is not impacted our recruiting and it is does not impact their quality ope
is not there. >> now, when you see the cbs "new york times" that's a good poll. the nbc "wall street journal," that's a good poll. the des moines register has their own. joe an seltser does that. there is some high quality, a lot of people calling live people but it's very, very little. and that's what plutes the averages and whether it's pollster.com or whether it's real clear politics or talking points memo or nate. nate as really bright guy. but i think you need to be a little more discriminating in terms of what polls you're plugging in because otherwise it's garbage in, garbage out. >> the last question before we go to your questions. given we are in a choose your own adventure environment tell me your instinct. it's a very close election. do you think that the public at large of the losing side, whoever that might be delared to be is going to be prepared to accept losing? >> no. >> no. certainly it's going to feel very different than it did in 2008 where mccain voters certainly wanted their guy to win but also you talk to a lot said boy on election night right you sort of felt a sense
